Sending in Your CV
Make sure your CV is easy to follow:
- in chronological order with all companies,
- their locations,
- and the amount of time you worked for each shown,
- along with a description of your main duties.
- should not be longer than two pages.
And, yes, please do include a cover letter—this is your chance to share a little of your personality. So please don’t send us a generic cover letter; we want to know why you want this position and company in particular. For some positions it’s also appropriate to send a link to or attach examples from your portfolio. Final step: make sure to proofread it all!
The Road to the Job
Once you’ve been asked for an interview, you will be contacted by a recruiter. Use this conversation to make sure you are fully informed about the position and any requirements. Before your interview, explore our sites and think about how you’ll fit into the company and what you can bring to the job.
Please bring to the interview any relevant materials to show off your experience and expertise. And remember that an interview is a conversation: as important as it is that you fit this job, it’s just as important that this job fits you. So do use the interview time to ask your own questions as well!
Your first interview—face-to-face or via Skype, depending on your location—will be with the hiring manager. Part of the recruitment process will also include assessment tests like a personality test, case studies, competency/technical tests, or other assessments depending on the position. We will also always invite you to our headquarters in Hilversum, the Netherlands to meet with the Management Team member responsible for your department before hiring.
Please keep in mind that Spil is a casual company—we don’t impose a strict dress code.
